Breaking Cover is an innovative and interactive initiative created by Red Deer Players in conjunction with the Red Deer Public Library. It was first created through a partnership with the Friends of the Library as a means of working with local and Alberta wide playwrights to workshop scripts in progress, using a group of experienced Red Deer actors and directors.
An integral part of the process is the interaction between audience, director, playwright and cast, following the performance. This interaction provides the playwright with the opportunity to see how this new work is received and perceived by an audience.
After the first successful season of Breaking Cover, Red Deer Players is thrilled that the decision was made to adopt it as full fledged Red Deer Public Library program, for a second season.
All our readings take place in the Snell Auditorium at the Red Deer Public Library, at 1:45 pm
